The Big Brute Suck & Dumps are ideal for safely emptying heavy, free-flowing waste into high-sided skips or hoppers, without the need for heavy lifting.

Protect your staff from manual handling whilst keeping your premises clean.



Safely empty heavy waste loads with your forklift and a Big Brute Suck & Dump.

The Big Brute Suck & Dump vacuum cleaners are ideal for safely emptying heavy, free-flowing waste into high-sided skips or hoppers, without the need for heavy lifting.

These machines can be wheeled around site on their 4-wheeled trolleys, like all Big Brutes. Their trolleys have built-in forklift sockets so you can raise the whole Big Brute Suck & Dump up and move it over to your waste skip. Open the quick-release flap on the base and your waste is discharged quickly and without mess into your skip. Ideal for recycling material into process hoppers.

We offer 2 models: the Flat Base and the Cone Base. The Flat Base is an entry-level model ideal for use where cross-contamination isn’t critical as some waste product can remain within the drum. The Cone Base model, with its angled hopper base, empties completely and is ideal for processing free-flowing waste where preventing cross-contamination is more critical.

Both models use the same accessories and options as the Big Brute Popular and Warehouseman.


What’s it best for?

Ideal for dry, free-flowing material, such as pellets and grains. Also ideal for bulk recovery of such material that you want to empty quickly.

The Flat Base model is ideal for situations where you aren’t concerned about cross-contamination.

The Big Brute Suck & Blow power unit harnesses all the suction power to blow dust and dirt away. Switch from suck to blow in seconds.

Both power unit types are available in 230V or 110V versions.

Suck Only

The Suck Only power unit does just that - sucks. But sucks well!

Our standard Big Brute power units come with 3 motors giving a total of 3.2kW of suction power.

Available in 230V or 110V versions.

Suck & Blow

Our Suck & Blow power unit has the same motors and suction power as the Standard Suck Only power unit.

However, the filtered air is directed through an exhaust port on the top of the power unit.

Simply push your suction hose onto the exhaust port to harness the Big Brute's 3.2kW of cleaning power in a continuous blast of air.

Ideal for dislodging dust and dirt from crevices or ledges.

Switch from suck to blow in seconds - and back again. Use your Big Brute's suction power to then suck up dirt and debris blown out.

Available in 230V or 110V versions.

It’s made from PVC with with a black outer with reinforcing threads, and supported by a helical PVC-coated wire.

It has an operating temperature of -20°C to 70°C and a weight of 0.5kg per metre.

Available in 3, 5, 10, or 15m lengths, without losing suction. Join multiple lengths together with a coupler to get even further reach.

A popular option is to have 2 lengths, one of 5m, one of 10m, and coupler. This gives you the flexibility of shorter lengths for cleaning in confined spaces and the ability to join the lengths to reach further.

This Big Brute is also available as a Warehouseman model.

The Big Brute Warehouseman version is ideal for cleaning large floor areas quickly, easily and without stirring up dust into the air.

If you’ve ever tried to sweep a floor clean, you’ll know just what an endless task it is. It’s hard work. Everything gets covered in clouds of dust – including you. It takes forever. And the floor doesn’t even feel that clean afterwards.

The Big Brute Warehouseman option includes a wide, front-mounted floor brush that skims the floor as you push, sweeping and sucking up dust and debris as it goes.

It has self-levelling arms which keep the brush in contact with the floor, so it’ll still work beautifully on even floors.

Its made completely of metal, so it’ll put up with all the knocks and bashes it’s going to get in industrial cleaning.

Give our friendly, knowledgeable team a call to see how the Warehouseman version of this Big Brute can help you clean your large floors more quickly and easily.
